Brain Sheet Diagrams
- 0Aug 15, '11 by whitecat5000So I'm trying to create my own brain sheet for the med/surg floor that I'm working on.
When I look at different examples they have diagrams on their sheet like an X or a weird fishbone looking thing.
What are these diagrams for?
My friend said it was to write lab values like Hgb, Hct, K, Ca, Na, etc. Is that true?
I would post a link to a couple of examples but I don't know how...
- 0Nov 4, '11 by ntlunawe use these at the place I work:
It's hard to describe without drawing it but using "Whitecat 5000" diagrams:
WBC >------ HGB on top and HCT on bottom of lines------< PLATELETS
----SODIUM on top, POTASSIUM on bottom in first break,----/
---CHLORIDE, CO2---in second break ----/
----BUN, CREATININE in last break-----and < GLUCOSE in the arrow tail.
Hope that makes sense.
